get messy. so we use tide free. no perfumes or dyes for her delicate skin. brad. not it. not it. just kidding. that's our tide. what's yours? i want to get you right back out to washington, d.c., specifically the supreme court where joe johns is standing by, our justice correspondent. you got 90 seconds to tell me what they said, how they said it, the tone, and where you think it's going, joe. >> reporter: hey, ashleigh.
of course, the issue is section 5 of the voting rights act passed first in 1965, reauthorized four times. section 5 is the heart of the bill to assure the rights of people to vote. now, actually ought to be thrown out because perhaps it targets the wrong states or it's too broad. this discussion can really zeroed in on the fact that alabama, of course, was bringing the case -- has had a long history of discrimination. alabama claims now has cleaned up it is act, specifically can shelby county, which is the pear in this capetitioner in this ca. it will likely be a very close decision when they finally finish this thing up. back to you. >> i remember in '09, the chief justice said section 5's days were numbered. i know you scrambled out here to get it to us. that's all the time i have. thank you, joe johns.
thank you for watching as well. stay tuned for "around the world." i'm susan malvo. >> and i'm michael holmes. >> welcome to "around the world." here's what is happening right now. >> in italy, it hasn't happened in hundreds of years. saying farewell to a living pope. i've got a live report from the vatican as a report of a scandal is continuing to explode in the media. and a shooting in switzerland. still no answers in what made a gunman open fire at a lumber plant and take his own life. >> in mexico, more than two million animals slaughtered to try to contain bird flu. what it means for the food that your family eats. that's coming up as well. we begin in vatican city where pope benedict xvi is spending his last full day as pope. he delivered his last speech. tens and thousands of people
gathered in st. peter's square to hear what he had to say. >> recalling moments of joy and light during his last eight years leading the church but he said there were difficult times as well, which he said, quote, seemed like the lord was sleeping. >> the pope also talked about his resignation, calling it a tough decision to make. >> i continue with my prayers and ask each of you to pray for me and for the new pope. >> after the speech, the pope greeted crowds at his popemobile. of course, they are going to take a chopper to the papal summer residence outside the city of rome. >> christiane amanpour is joining us. details about how the pope will live his life out.
pretty fascinating. we' we're. >> reporter: you're absolutely right. we are on unchartered waters. the last time this happened was 600 years ago. pope benedict xvi after tomorrow, a new pope elected sometime we can expect before it begins on palm sunday, march 24th. so this is what is going to happen. he is going to leave the vatican tomorrow at 5:00 p. mrk local time. and there we are told he will stay for at least a couple of months, the logistics completed and the renovation and also, of course, to try to put some
distance between him and pope emeritus for the new pope. those are the basic details of what we know. we do know that his private secretary will continue to minister to him and live with him in that convent that he will end up in. he will also continue to adjust and to organize the private meetings of the new pope. so there's an area of sort of cross-pollination, one man working for two popes. that will be interesting. and there's so many challenges and issues to deal with for the new pope. >> christiane, tell me about the process here. there's going to be a college of cardinals voting for the new pope. tell us about the transition, how they do that and how will we know that we have a new pope and is there going to be a period where there is no pope? >> reporter: yes, there is a period where there's no pope and that starts precisely at 8:01
p.m. tomorrow night. the pope leaves and ends his papacy at 8:00 p.m. local time and then they have the empty seat. now, right at that moment is when the vatican sends out all of the messages to get all the cardinals here to rome, most of them anyway, to start talking about the future. they are expected to have their first big meeting of all the cardinals on monday, which will be march 4th, and then they will decide what date to call the conclave. the conclave, of course, is the election body really for the next pope. and only the cardinals of election age are able to take part. those who are under 80. so that will take place sometime after monday. we'll know when the conclave is full and then it's anybody's guess as to how long that conclave will take to finally come up with a consensus candidate as the next pontiff. it has to have two-thirds of people in the conclave voting
for it. of course, if they don't come up with it, there's black smoke. if they do come up with a decision, it's the white smoke from that chimney in st. peter's. >> christiane, thank you. i remember waiting for the white or black smoke last time. >> they keep going until they get somebody. into all right. joining us from new york, the reverend james, a priest, contributing editor of the catholic magazine america. >> we want to ask you here, because the he has within approved with behavior blaming a lot of the sex scandals in the church based on the rules of celibacy. why don't you give him a quote. >> i'll read this to you first. frank bruni says, the church leaders preach a purity that its
own clerics can't maintain. they cast stones and are so very far from blameless. but before we range across that sadly familiar terrain, let's give a moment's thought to loneliness and longing. and this, the pledge of celibacy that the church requires of its servants and is often cruel and corrosive thing. it runs counter to nature and asks too much. >> father, do you think it asks too much? do you think if the church asked those not to be celibate? >> those are two different questions. i think there have been some cardinals that have talked about married priests and we have married priests but frank's piece, nothing against frank but i thought that was -- there's a lot of sexual abuse in families but no one says that marriage leads to sexual abuse.
there's a lot of sexual abuse within schools but no one says that being a teacher leads to sexual abuse. i think it was a ridiculous article and kind of offensive. i'm a celibate male, i'm not a pedophile and one thing does not lead to the other and i think that needs to be rejected. >> father, i agree with you certainly. but i think the point he was making is, he was talking about the loneliness, the lonely lives that priests live and that they turn to other men, grown men who are inside the priesthood for comfort and even for sexual intimacy. do you believe that that is necessarily connected, that to be forced to a life of celibacy could turn someone to another male inside the priesthood for intimacy? >> i think it's ridiculous. certainly loneliness is part of the priest lives. if you have someone who is an elderly person who lives down the street, you know, who might be lonely, you don't say that
they are going to be a pedophile or suddenly, you know, act inappropriately sexually. i think it's a real misunderstanding of what celibacy is. you have great celibacy people, mother teresa, jesus, and no one looks at them and says that they are acting inappropriately. you can't connect the two. >> a lot of people have had difficulty with it. we've seen that in some of the scandals. walk us through the life. how difficult is it? or is it not? >> well, i mean, there are difficulties with it. there are difficulties with marriage, too. i mean, that's not always a bed of roses either. you know, a celibate person, a healthy celibate person has to have close friends. they have to have people that they can open themselves up to. they have to enjoy their work. it's a different way of loving, basically. it's not for everybody. i think that's kind of one of the mistakes that people seem to make. we don't say that it is for everybody but it is for some people and it is for me and i'm certainly not lonely. i have tons of friends. so i think that was really a
kind of misinformed article and i really object to the linking of celibacy with pedophilia. >> he left the church after a secret relationship with a woman was exposed by the tabloids and he talked about the celibacy rule. this was on piers morgan tonight. i want you to hear what he said when he weighed in on this. >> most of us secular priests may not be called to lifelong celibacy and it's horrible to see that homosexual persons are being told that their sexuality is a disorder while we know that homosexuality is alive and well among many of the clergy. how is it that this institution condemns homosexuality yet allow or cover up homosexuality within their own ranks? that's a big problem. >> father, how do you see it? i mean, the hypocrisy he's
addressing inside of the catholic church. >> well, it's like saying that because some marriages end in divorce that all marriages are hypocritical. i think to kind of look at a few cases, and certainly pointing to the sexual abuse cases which were real crimes and to say that all priests therefore live that way is ridiculous. it's like saying i have a friend that got divorced and therefore everybody in a marriage is a hypocrite. >> it's not saying that everyone. it's saying that it exists and there are widespread reports, the pope talking about basically gay clubs of priests. >> i don't know what you mean by gay clubs. i would certainly say there are gay clergy. i know a lot of priests who are gay but they are also celibate. i think one of the other misconceptions is somehow being gay, you know, and being a priest means that you cannot be celibate which is also ridiculous. i think there's so much
misinformation going on out there and we have to sort of celebrate celibacy from homosexuality and in this new york times op ed, they don't seem to know what they are talking about. >> appreciate your time, reverend jam martin. >> my pleasure. >> it is getting very complicated and confusing. you have to separate all of the issues. but the fact that we are doing this, that we have to separate the issues, address the hypocrisy inside of the roman catholic church because there are certain rules and they say it's not okay for you but yet it's taking place behind closed doors within the leaders of the church. that's the main issue. >> i totally agree. and the reverend's argument that you can't use too much of a broad brush. what is happening there doesn't mean that it's happening everywhere. you're right. it's a difficult one. >> we want to get to the truth. hopefully with the next pope we'll get to the truth here.
christianea amanpour will be back with cardinal mccare rick. all of this is new allegations of a sprawling sex scandal looms over the church. >> meanwhile, military officials want to make clear, they can't can say truthfully they are winning the war. they are talking about a mistake, basically bad math in a military report that wrongly showed that violent attacks in afghanistan were down in 2012. >> they actually weren't. here's the problem. nato has been justifying the troop drawdown from afghanistan with stats that show that the country is less violent now. well, now the new fix report says the number of deadly attacks has not changed much and the drawdown plan calls for the majority of troops to leave afghanistan this year. all right. dennis rodman may not seem like
the most likely choice for an athlete turned politics. >> he has now teamed up with a group that is classic american, we're talking about the harlem globetrotters. >> it could be the most breath taking event in north korea since the company literally went nuclear. dennis rodman arriving for a bit of unofficial do no harm diplomacy. >> we got invited and we're coming over and having some fun and hoping that it will be some fun. >> for a chance to wear his blue track pant and ralph lauren baseball cap. in a country that bans lots of cool stuff. >> he can posing north korea to americans gets them away from this relentless propaganda of
evil imperialists and shows that americans are just normal human beings. >> in this case, he's tv talent for an hbo series media called vice. eric schmidt of google went there, lawyer la ling stumbled across the border way back when, there was mohamed ali. >> we love every place that we go. >> who they are is the harlem globetrotters touring hot spots as goodwill ambassadors. >> we're going to show them what we do as part of harlem globetrotters. >> and a retired nba phenom.
>> when was the last time that dennis rodman was relevant? it's been a while. he has a clothing line, he's a business person, to be relevant in the marketplace again. >> what does kim jong-un still taunting it is american enemy gain by allowing him in their litt mill tar ris stick state? >> they get some pr by having this visit. >> i think it's the fulfilling of a childhood fantasy. the 10-year-old basketball crush kind of guy. here's a guy that probably had a poster of dennis rodman on his wall at one point, whatever the north korean version of that is.
>> do you think they are using him or do you think it's a good thing? >> i think they are. a guy like rodman goes to north korea and he's not going to be meeting any people. he's going to be meeting the leadership and i think it's a propaganda tool. sticking to that wrestling thing in iran -- >> cammaraderie. >> yes, and diplomacy. >> interesting. coming up. skin color. is it a fashion statement? pretty controversial here. photos and magazines are going viral. they show a model in a black face. we're going to take a look at what all of this means. only gaviscon® forms a protective barrier that helps block stomach acid from splashing up- relieving the pain quickly. try fast, long lasting gaviscon®.

. here are the stories making news right now. in india, a tragedy, a fire swept through a paper and plastic market, killing at least 18 people. >> this is a building that also had apartments where people were sleeping when the fire broke out. the bbc spoke to officials who say the building had only one exit and did not have adequate fire safety measures in place. to paris now, that is where the new top u.s. diplomat is
today. this is secretary of state john kerry and his official welcome by the france president. he's there to talk about syria. later today, kerry travels to rome and he's on a nine nation trip. an american couple who disappeared while on a bike trek in peru has been spotted. jamie neil and garret hand were seen in a remote part of the amazon in a small boat headed up the river. >> but her mother says she's not going to believe this until she hears directly from her son. she wants to get some sort of proof that he is alive. she hasn't heard from the couple in a month and she says she hasn't accessed their banks accounts. they haven't accessed their bank accounts since then. they are 25-year-olds from the san francisco area and posting their pictures on facebook. >> but they stopped in late january and calls to their cell
phones went unanswered. the tourism ministry in peru says it will shoot video of the couple and provide proof that they are doing okay when they catch up with them. >> all right. welcome back to "around the world." a 16-year-old model is causing quite a bit of controversy here. a magazine featured her as an african queen. check it out. >> covering her pale skin head to toe with brown makeup. alina cho is joining us from new york. >> why did this happen? could they not find an african-american, a model to play an african queen? >> that is one of the big questions s. why didn't they just cast a black model for this spread. i can tell you a little bit about this model, suzanne. her name is andrea harden. she's just 16 years old. she's one of the hottest models. she's about to appear in a big campaign for mark jacobs.
it is that spread in france's numero magazine that is getting a lot of attention and criticism. we want to show you what she looks like without the dark makeup so you can imagine the outrage. a this girl is alibastair. "numero" magazine says there was no intent to offend. in a statement, numero has always supported the artistic freedom of the talented photographers who work with the magazine to illustrate its ages and has not taken part in the process of this editorial. a couple of minutes ago we got a statement from a rep for photographer sebastian kim saying, it was never my intention to portray a black
woman in this edition. i believe the very unfortunate title, african queen, which i was not aware of prior to publication, did a lot to further people's misconceptions and i wholeheartedly apologize to anyone who was offended. but it does beg the question, why not just hire a black model for this editorial spread? i just finished covering new york fashion week. diversity is a big problem on the runways. 82% of all models working during new york fashion week were white. of the remaining 18%, just 6% were black. suzanne? >> did the model speak out at all? did she say how she felt about this or whether or not she suspected any controversy over it? >> no, she didn't. we've been trying to reach out to her through her agency. so far we haven't had any luck. but i spoke be with the ceo of
council design of america. he said it would be great if there was more diversity but you have to ask the question, what is the pool of talent? he spoke to that african queen spread and said that he doesn't believe that it was meant to mock but does call it creative -- a bad creative direction and agrees, yes, it would have been better just to hire a black model. >> and it's interesting, too, this is not the first time that this has happened, has it? this sort of black-faced thing? >> and not by a long shot. if you look at the editorial work over the years, it's not the first time numero has done this. they used a model to portray an african mother complete with dark face paint also in 2010. a super model posed in dark makeup in an afro wig.
there is black paint covering her face and body. i do think it's important to point out, though, that italian vogue recently devoted an entire issue to black models. it was really, really well received in the industry. it sold out, as a matter of fact. but it's just one example and i think when we see things like this, it is just a reminder that they tl needs to be more diversity on editorial pages and on the runways in new york, paris, malin, and london. more than two million animals slaughtered to try to contain bird flu. whether it's the food that your family is eating, this is up in mexico, next.

>> reporter: we've been longing to hear a perspective from a cardinal and a cardinal that was there this morning and has so much history with the catholic church and part of the conclave back in 2005 when pope benedict xvi himself was elected. this is a noisy evening. we are very close to a hospital and we can hear the hospitals going by. i will let that go by before i start and turn to the cardinal. cardinal mccarrick, welcome to our program. thank you for joining us. >> it's a trif ledge. you are the best. >> you are so kind. you were there in st. peter's square this morning. >> i was. >> what was your reaction? >> the last one happened in 600 years ago and i'm sure they didn't have that kind of a crowd. the holy father was really saying farewell and said it very beautifully. he's a man of great courtesy and
great culture and it was that kind of a presentation. he thanked everybody and this humility comes out, this humility and courage. this extraordinary combination of virtues that pope benedict has. >> reporter: now, he did talk about the joy that he felt after eight years as pope. he also mentioned the difficulties. he talked about the gravity of his decision, about the novelty of this decision. he talked about having faced hard times, also. that the church had been buffeted on agitated waters but that he was sure that god would not allow this church to sink. he careerly was referring not just to the usual challenges of the church but to some of the scandals, some of the difficulties that have rocked this church. how do you think his papacy has dealt with them and how does the next pope have to deal with these scandals? >> those are two very good
questions. i think his papacy has dealt with them as well as he could. i think the instrumentalities, he has used them. he's done everything at he could do, i believe, to take care of this. i think as we go on and trying to figure out how best to serve god's people, how best to present the church in this world of ours, probably his success is going to have to do what we did 50 years before pope benedict came. the church needs that every few years. >> what does that mean? >> it means to bring us up to date. the doctrines never change. but the way we present them has to change. the way we talk to people
because the people have changed. the people won't listen to 100 years ago. >> reporter: let me ask you about that. because obviously the next big issue will be the conclave. you are not going to be taking part in electing. you've reached an age whereby you can no longer vote? >> yes. >> reporter: that's as kind as i can put it. you voted the last time around and so many cardinals have been elevated by pope benedict xvi or by his predecessor pope john paul ii. americans are saying perhaps there needs to be a new direction. 51% say it should stay the same. what sort of reforms do you think should happen? >> you're asking me the $64 million question. but i think definitely we have
to keep continuing to involve the laypeople. we don't have enough priests. we should have more priests. we should work on that. the holy father has done that. bishops around the country, around the world have done that. we haven't done it well enough. we must keep praying for it. we must keep attracting the young people, priests and religious, too. we need wonderful religious women to continue the teaching functions, the peacemaking function of our world. >> do you think, as some have subjected, including cardinal o'brien because of the problems that he's in, have decided not to come to this conclave but he said that he thought it was time that priests should be allowed to marry. that discussion should happen. 58% of american catholics think the priests should be allowed to marry. can you imagine that happening and do you think that would be a good idea? >> i certainly can imagine it happening under certain circumstances, like even now
when priests who are married come in to the church, they are able to continue their married states. >> you're talking about angolans? >> and other ministers who come in. so i think there is -- this is not an impossible situation. but we have from the lord that presentation of celibacy is a very important thing in the life of a priest. i was a bishop at the diocese for 25 years and, you know, there's not only a spiritual advantage. very practical advantage you want a man who's married with a family to leave to a place where you desperately need him. he says, my wife has a job, my kids are in school, i can't do this. these are not the major factors but bishops trying to serve god's people, these are things that happen from time to time and they are very important.
but i think the nature of giving yourself is hard to do. many of us don't do it as well as we should do. maybe i'm not doing it as well as i should be. you're selfish sometimes, you plan on things. but basically just to give yourself to god, those are the priests who really touch god's people. >> do you think it's time for a noneuropean pope? we've had europeans, mostly italians for hundreds of years but the church is growing the fastest in places like after kar africa, asia, and parts of the growing world. >> i am glad that many feel that way and there are so many wonderful bishops and cardinals from the third world. it would be certainly a beautiful thing to have -- to show the universality in that
way. if i were voting, i would consider voting for a nonfirst world. >> what about the american pope? do you think that's likely this time snas time around? >> i love my brothers but i don't think it's likely. it's not needed. we have a lot of gifts that the american people have, that the american bishops have. >> reporter: do you accept with what some people say ark lot of catholics in europe and in america believe the church to be in a certain element of crisis, mostly because of these sex abuse scandals that have rocked the church? do you accept that there is is a crisis that needs to be ended? >> i accept that there's a crisis but i don't think that this is the only crisis. the crisis is the world that we deal with. we're living in a world at war. we're living in a world where there's so of persecution, christians and catholics, too.
not just in muslim countries but other countries, too. there's a secularism in our society and that's the crisis more than anything else that the church is facing today. >> reporter: again, just to push you on this, because there's so many catholics who love their faith but feel very letdown and disappointed by the hierarchy and by these priests that have been vindicated and the priests that have hidden the crisis. what should the church do to let people love their faith again? >> they must continue to do what benedict xvi has done very clearly in so many instances and other bishops, hopefully most of us have tried very clearly to say we can cannot continue to have this problem in the church. we've got to make sure in our seminaries, in our psychology of dealing with people, we've got
to be able to present our priests, our sisters, our lay leaders to the world as people who are interested in them and not in themselves. >> i was very interested to hear this time around the pope -- well, his spokespeople, saying that it's up to certain cardinals to decide whether or not to come here and we're talking specifically about archbishop mahony of los angeles. there's a petition going around that people say he should not come, because of the allegations that he shielded priests from accountability. did you think that it was up to him to decide? do you think he should have taken part, or not? >> you know, it's hard to get inside a man's mind, a man's heart. we make mistakes. but i know father mahony and i think this is a good man who wanted to do the right thing and who felt at the time this was the right thing to do.
turned out he was wrong and that's a shame. that's unfortunate. but this is a good man who really tried in so many areas to take care of people and we can all fall in some mistakes, every one of us, and when this happens, obviously it hurts the church. it hurts people and it hurts the man himself. these things are really so complex, christiane. they are so complex. you have to get into a man's heart, into a man's mind when these things are happening. and then there's always the possibility and the hope that you grow in your understanding and you grow more clear about what your duties should be and you follow it through. i think you have to give somebody the grace of saying,
you know, maybe that was a mistake ten years ago. i've learned since. >> reporter: as we go into a new conclave, we're not sure when it's going to start but perhaps in the next two weeks certainly, do you feel a pain at what's happened to the catholic church and the way it's being viewed in many quarters and how do you think this conclave might or might not be affected by these challenges? >> you always ask good questi questions. i think we all feel the pain. we would all like to walk in with everything fine and the sunshining. but that's not the world today. so these internal problems in the church are hurting us all. but then the external problems -- i keep talking, this is a world that is really in trouble and the church is there to cure the trouble s of the world. the church is there to say god
loves you and all of these things deep in our heart, how do we express them back to? this is going to be the great challenge of this conclave, i think, to be able to go back into the modality and find that they are very courageous, brilliant men who said, we've got to change the way we talk about things. we've got to change a lot of things. not the doctrine. we're going to keep following what jesus christ told us but we've got to make sure that the people of this generation understand and that we help them to understand by the way we teach, by the way we preach, by the way we pray and show we love them. >> now, i know that in the conclave no cardinal is allowed to speak outside the conclave or tweet or do anything like that. but you've been there. tell us what it's like when you make this incredible choice in decision. >> can i tell you the story that
i've been telling in many, many conferences over the past few weeks? the key moment of the conclave, you have your ballot in the hand, you're going to put it in the urn, you've written down one of the names of the card nals and in front of you is michael anglo's last supper, last judgment, rather. and before you put the ballot in, you read an oath. it's something like this. i call on jesus christ my lord who will be my judge. and there's michael angelo in front of you. who will be my judge that i'm voting for the man that i feel under god should be pope. the man that i feel god wants to be pope. so it becomes a discernment. you don't pick your buddy. you don't pick somebody that's going to move to you a better place or give you a lot of axillaries. by your oath, you pick the man
you think god wants to lead his church in the next how many years. that's the real thing that you go -- and i can talk about that because that's in the document that we all have to do, the public document. but when you go inside and do it, we did it t more than once but every time you do it it, you see that same thing. lord, am i doing the right thing? have i picked the right man? is this what you want me to do? maybe if we had more of that in our lives, we'd have a better opportunity to serve god's people. >> let me ask you a serious question. you say pick the right man. do you think there's any chance that one day they'll pick women to be priests at least? >> i -- i sort of have to go back to what john paul ii said. he really issued a document that makes it of faith. so i'm a man of faith and i'm a man of the church. i don't think that's going to
happen. but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't develop more and more opportunities for women to serve because they come with so much -- so much strength. not just goodness. so much strength. we need a lot of that today. >> faith and hope spring eternal. >> amen. >> cardinal mccarrick, thank you so much for joining me. >> thank you. >> back to you, suzanne and michael. >> thanks, christiane, fascinating discussion. we're going to take a quick break and be right back on cnn.
